     Overview

    How to Book Appointments

Learning Resources provides informational, instructional, reference, research, and educational services designed to meet the academic needs of students, faculty and staff. Collectively, the eight libraries offer a wide variety of resources including books, e-books, audiovisual materials, magazines and journals.

College Libraries are also part of Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC), a statewide consortium that provide access to subscription databases with thousands of full-text articles. All electronic resources are available anytime, anywhere Internet is available. Librarians are available to assist with research needs and provide guidance on the use of library resources.
